I use Zattoo for watching the free-to-air French TV channels, and it does work for that purpose, provided (1) you pay the 2.50 Euros p/m subscription fee (otherwise you only get France 2), (2) you don't want TF1 (which isn't available on this service at the moment), and (3) you use a VPN with a French IP if you're accessing from outside France.

I think all the video feeds are provided for free by the TV stations on their websites, so the Zattoo subscription fee is for the convenience of having them together in one app, and I think it's reasonable value for that. They shouldn't advertise it as "absolutely free", though, particularly as there are alternatives such as adsltv.org (PC only, but works in Parallels), which really are free.

Subscription: The quality of this software, is dependend on where you are located in the world They have different models for each country.

Here in germany there are many free channels, but the private channels are missing and if you want to watch HiQ you have to pay.

But it's still quite useful without paying.

And yes, you have to subscribe with a mail adress, but since there is no mail confirmation (or was no mail confirmation when I subscribed) you can just enter anything.

Just give it a try!

No subscription needed at all.You do have to register, but that's all.
Zattoo works well, the problem is it's really been surpassed by catchup tv (www.catchuptv.com) that offers more channels & can even be viewed on your iPhone.
However for what it does it does well.

Just to add I'm in the UK.
Subscription might be required from outside the UK.

"...absolutely free!" = "That channel requires a subscription. If you would like to subscribe, please visit our subscription page."
